Marking the anniversary of John Lennon's untimely and senseless death, The Boogiemonster put this "Not The Beatles" show together, which, truthfully, is a more fun way to take a look back on such a tragic event. His commentary throughout is pretty excellent, combined with the "heartbreaking" unaired, and as-aired Casey Kasem clips during the December 1980 countdown.
Through the crap, there are some outstanding tracks - anytime the Knickerbockers ("Lies") are included in something, that something is something I can usually get behind. "The Paul McCartney Massacre," "Beatle Rap" (with 400 bazillion Beatle in-references!), and the surprise of the episode, the original version of "Twist and Shout" to close out the show!
Looking forward to a couple repeat-listens to this one. So much crap, so little time!
